Jessie and I must've shared a brain wave the other day or something. We both realized that we were running out of days for our summery polishes, and I think I had a mild panic attack (complete over-exaggeration). Why does summer always have to be so short?! I feel like just a few weeks ago I was pushing snow off my car. Sigh. Jessie showed you RBL Bikini Bottom, so I'm completing the Spongebob trio with Starfish-Patrick! :-)
It's hard to really accurately describe the color of this one, but I'm gonna go with orangey-corally-salmon. In some lights it looks a bit pinkish, but others a bit more orange. The jelly formula of this one means two things - a soft, squishy look (YAY!), and four coats. But don't panic. As with its counterparts, RBL's smooth formula makes it easy to apply, even if it does mean waiting longer for it to dry. As far as these photos go, I'd say they're pretty color accurate, but they're not as opacity accurate as I'd like. Starfish-Patrick is a smidge more sheer than these photos suggest, but if you're rocking nubbins you probably wouldn't notice the difference.

Of the Spongebob polishes, I have to say that Starfish-Patrick was the one that worried me the most. I love pale blues (even though they don't always love me), and you guys know how much I ADORED Square Pants, but this guy was a wild card. I wasn't sure how it would look against my skin tone. On the first coat, I was all HAYULLLL NAW! It got better with the second and third coats, and by coat number four I was in love! It's strange and beautiful all at the same time. Plus, who doesn't love this guy?
Ji did a great job with this entire collection. Each polish is unique and gorgeous, and they're all must-haves in my book (even with the hefty price tag)! I really love that she went down an unbeaten path with the names. Square Pants and Bikini Bottom are still up for grabs at http://www.rescuebeauty.com/, but unfortunately Starfish-Patrick is sold out. HUGE SAD! You can still find some bottles floating around for swaps and I do see a fair few pop up on eBay from time to time, but I honestly would be surprised if this one doesn't make a comeback on the next vote. :-)
I'm so not ready for the summer to be over! *shakes fist at winter*
